1 Gita Sloka  Every Day - Chapter 18 - Moksha Sanyasa Yoga - Sloka 53

Ahankaram balam darpam kamam krodham parigraham I
Vimuchya nirmamah shantah brahma bhuyaya kalpate II sloka 53
अहङ्कारं बलं दर्पं कामं क्रोधं परिग्रहम् I 
विमुच्य निर्माणः शान्तः ब्रह्म भूयय कल्पते II श्लोक 53

Having abandoned egoism, violence, arrogance, desire, enmity, property, free from the motion of "mine" and peaceful, he is fit for attaining Brahman.

(who) does not ave ego, thinking that the body is the same as the soul; gives up the strong tendencies, which cause such an ego; gives up arrogance, passion, anger and sense of possession of property, which are caused by such wrong tendencies; is free from the sense of possessiveness, ie., clear that wife, sons etc., do not belong to him, is calm and at peace, enjoying the experience of the soul;

Such a person who does yoga of meditation gets released from all bonds and experiences teh true nature of the soul.
